Sugar and SPICE

And Everything Nice. That's what my little girls are made of!


Now that a baby boy is on the way (which thrills us), I am realizing that my baby girls are growing up so quickly. A friend told me that while raising young children the days may at times go slow but the years fly by. Every time I put a darling outfit in the "too small" bin I feel a little sad. Another friend of mine said that when you have a little girl you should always ACCESSORIZE. So I bought these Easter hats just for the sake of putting them on and taking some pics. (And for dress-ups later)

The day Will returned to school after Christmas vacation was hard for me. The neighbors saw me bawling on my walk home from the bus stop. So we came home and decided to get girly. We painted nails and baked in the EZ Bake oven. Caroline has always been my sidekick in the kitchen. Desi is now fully obsessed with nail polish and lip gloss. So I entertain the obsession. She is my little girl.

What...I thought you weren't going to find out what you are having. How exciting to have two of each. I am sure Will is thrilled not to be out numbered. The girls look so sweet.

We love to do the nail, makeup, hair, cooking and all those girly things. The older brother is very happy when we do these things while he's at school. Desi is looking very grownup and I love Caraline's puckered lips! Great quotes.
